Winter Elk

Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming

Fine Art Print | Limited Edition of 50

A bull elk looks in the distance as he hears the bugling of another bull. Bull elk are very territorial during the rut (matting) season. The bull elk with the largest racks are the ones who will have the opportunity to mate. Because of this fact, bulls often try to make their racks look bigger by carrying around vegetation on them. (Humans are not the only wildlife that will do stupid things in order to try and impress the ladies) This bull was in the process of goring a bush in order to collect twigs before he was disturbed by the call of another bull.

Elk antlers are made of bone and can grow as much as one inch per day making them amongst the fastest growing animal tissue in the world. Each antler can weigh as much as twenty pounds with a combined spread of four feet. During the rut season, points matter. When a female elk has the choice between a nine point and a ten point bull, she'll almost always choose the ten point. This Photograph was taken in the morning after an early snow storm hit Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. The white snow creates a beautiful contrast to the tan and brown fur of this majestic animal.© Mike Wardynski Photography

Modern Series | High gloss metal prints in external float frame

Metal prints have quickly become one of the most popular substrates for landscape photography. These prints are created through a process called dye sublimation in which dyes are infused directly into a specially coasted metal sheet. This technique produces a print that has higher brightness than paper resulting in enhanced saturation and smooth tones. Metal prints are surprisingly light and very easy to care for. They do not need to be protected by glass and come ready to hang in an external float frame that gives the print a modern look as it floats within a thin frame. Metal prints can easily be cleaned with regular household glass cleaner. They are UV resistant to ensure that your prints longevity.
